We are well into summer and that means warmer weather brings increased pollen counts. For people living with asthma and allergy symptoms, this can bring discomfort. But breathing cleaner air inside can help reduce those symptoms, no matter what’s going on outside. Here are some tips on how to improve your indoor air quality this summer.

#1: Keep your filters furnace filters cleaned.
If you’re running your air conditioning a lot this summer, ensure that the filters are cleaned and replaced regularly. If you neglect this task, you are bringing dirty air into your home that has significant dust, debris and pollen in it. Make sure you clean or replace your filters at least every 1 to 2 months. This not only helps with better indoor air quality, but it helps keep your system operating at peak efficiency, which increases your system’s life span.

#2: Use an air purification system.
Air purifiers will help clean the air that is distributed through your system. These machines remove allergens, bacteria, and other molecules that contribute to poor air quality in your home. Contact us to talk about which air purification systems

Spring official starts in just a couple of weeks, and that means we’ll have more sunshine, green grass, and blooming flowers. For people that live with seasonal allergies and asthma, this time of year could mean some miserable symptoms like coughing, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and more. But did you know that your indoor heating and cooling system can bring in those outside pollutants to your home? Here’s how your heating and cooling system affects your allergies.

Your HVAC system has an air filter that helps catch dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen, mold, and other pollutants that cause issues with asthma and allergies. Over time, these build up in the filter and they need to be replaced or cleaned. If filter cleaning or replacement is not done regularly, the buildup will be recirculated through the air in your home and that means you will likely notice some allergy symptoms. Set a remind to check your filters and clean them every other month at the minimum.

Another way to avoid poor indoor air quality is to stay on top of preventative maintenance appointments for your heating and cooling system. Just like you would take your car in for regular oil changes, so should you remember to maintain one of the most important systems in your home. Spring is the perfect time to schedule your tune-up with Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning. We will clean and/or replace filters, run an efficiency check on your machine to ensure that it’s working at its peak, then check to make sure there are no outstanding issues with the inside components that may cause an issue later down the road. If there is anything that we notice, we will let you know what needs to be repaired or replaced and talk about what our recommendations are. With the upcoming shift in season, you will want to be ready to handle whatever mother nature throws your way!

One more way to bolster indoor air quality and reduce seasonal allergy symptoms is to install an air purification system. These work alongside your heating and cooling system to clean your air and reduce pathogens, allergens, and other particles that try to make their way inside. Customers that use air purification systems notice a difference right away in their quality of life. We have a variety of different air purification systems available as options, so contact us today to see which one is right for you!
